Good thing I sewed these blocks BEFORE the house fell apart and I got sick!
House update: fans and dehumidifiers have been removed (!), hole to roof where wasps were entering has been temporarily plugged, and contractor has been called back in- waiting on him now. Me update: looks like gallbladder is probably coming out. I’ve been switched to a clear liquid diet, which sucks, and sent for a surgery consult. Since we have Kaiser, getting that scheduled is turning out to be a nightmare. My abdomen is incredibly sore and tender, and doing anything for more than a few moments is a terrible idea. Also, I shouldn’t knit in pain, as I had to rip out an entire heel of my current sock due to a really dumb mistake.
I had my next 3 Tula blocks done already, but I hadn’t taken pics, so I called on my daughter for help. Hence, in the photo above, they are out of order and one is sideways. But I’m still grateful to her for her help!
Block 64: I am so very very happy with this one- look how the cotton and steel purple dots line up on the diagonal!
Total accident, totally perfect.
Block 65: a peeping squirrel!
I wish I had faced the purple pearl bracelets down instead of up, but I still love this wonky little block.
Block 66: somehow this one ended up 7.5″ wide! WTF? How did I pull that off?
It’s the only one I’ve squared up so far, because, that was just insane.
No idea when I will feel well enough to sit and sew again. Sitting is very uncomfortable. Hopefully this clear liquid diet will work, and calm down my gallbladder and alleviate the pain… Hopefully.
Meanwhile, here’s my progress update:
Time for more greens and treys? Deep purples?
Did you have any Tula progress this week? Link up below…
Hope you’re all having a better week than me!
